Alumnae Editor Mrs. Amelia S. Lumpkin Eacidty Advisors Mrs. Lumpkin and Mrs. Harriett Smith SURPRISE! Surprises are great, especially when missing class is involved! Such was the case Friday, May 5, when it was announced at an "emergency" meeting of the entire school that classes would be sus- pended for the rest oi: the day for an unscheduled outing at Hack. Sponsored by the Student Govern- ment and received with hoops and hollers, the day turned out to be one of the most successful excur- sions of the year. The unexpected- ness, together with the remoteness of Huck, provided needed release from the tension of those last weeks of the semester. Good food, boat rides, long walks, quiet, softball, e\en fantastic human pyramids, and for many, sleep — provided cNcryone with a great time (and for some, lots of exercise and free rides as one of the buses broke down — surprise!) 7(*^e ^ficcci^Cc On May 4 and 5, the Jet Maskers dren of the Salem area: Susanna of Gulf Park presented "The Cru- cible." An atmosphere of witchery haunted the auditorium, as the curtain was opened on the strange- ly ill Betty Paris, played by Sheryl Fillingim. Completely puzzled by her sudden illness was her father. Wallcott (Noel Rae Coward), Mercy Lewis (Mary McGinnis), and Mary Warren (Peggy Young). It was through the pretention of these children that many innocent people were sentenced to death. Other members of the cast were: Reverend Paris, portrayed by David Isabel von Wachter and Mike Rich Kidley. Tituba, played by Mary Lee LaCour, their faithful Negro maid, was the first to confess com- municating with the devil. Rev- erend Paris' niece, Abigail Wil- liams, played by Carol Daniels, the Court Clerk; Tommy Meek as adds a bit of spice to the story Deputy-Governor Danforth; and through her love for the hero, John Jenny Losh as Sara Good, one of Proctor, portrayed by James Gard- the women accused of witchery, as Mr. and Mrs. Putnam; Ann Burke and Wayne Shaver as a very old Christian couple, Rebecca and Frances Nurse; Meime Metz- lan as Giles Cory; Toby Gold as ner.

For many jun- iors, the day began early as many went to Huckleberry Hill to gather gardenias and magnolias for the morning ceremony. As the music began, the Junior Class led the Class Day procession — each jun- ior, with a gardenia on her wrist, carrying a portion of the Magnolia Chain of Friendship. Seniors, at- tired in white dresses, walked down this aisle of friendship and ascended Friendship Oak for a last time as a class. The Vice President of the Senior Class, Miss Anne Kinney, pre- sented Friendship Oak to Miss Debbie Culloden, Vice President of the Junior Class, as a token of friendship, and extended an invi- tation to the juniors to ascend the platform as the Seniors of '67 de- scended. Miss Jane Friday, President of the Senior Class, placed the Sen- ior Robe around the shoulders of Miss Candy McDowell, Junior Class President, who accepted the challenge of responsible leadership for the class of '68. Miss Jane Friday presented to President Sadler a check for three hundred dollars to be used for lit- erary additions to Gulf Park's Li- brary, given in memory of Miss Ruth Schreiber and Dr. Richard G. Cox. Also, as part of the farewell gift, the Senior Class redecorated Senior Smoker. Class songs, the Cjulf Park Alma Mater and free-flowing tears char- acterized the conclusion of Class Day. Following this ceremony, students, parents, and guests were invited to Senior Smoker for an "Open House." . .On Friendship Oak ancient limbs rest heavily on. grass, bowed in awe of self-majesty SENIORS ASCEND THE PLATFORM OF FRIENDSHIP OAK DURING CLASS DAY EXERCISES Sparked by several outstanding horses donated to the Gulf Park Stables this year, the Spring Horse Show was a tremendous success.

G SCENE FROM CARIBBEAN HOLIDAY "DL 3. m c f oun Aquettes, one of Gulf Park's most outstanding groups on cam- pus, presented "This Is My Coun- try" as a highlight of the Com- mencement Weekend. A hvige map of the United States set the "stage." Following a patriotic trend, the Aquettes recognized outstanding places of our Nation. Beginning their tour in New Orleans, "The Crescent City," the Aquettes trav- eled westward through the "Red River Valley." "On The Trail" their travels extended to the Pa- cific Ocean and "San Francisco." Venturing to the Southwest, the Aquettes chose Hawaii, "Pearl of the Sea," as their next stop. Return- ing to the mainland and crossing the continent they made stops on "Broadway Tonight" and observed "Moonlight in Vermont." Travel- ing southward through "Shenan- doah" to "Stars Fell on Alabama," the group concluded the program with the title number "This Is My Country," while unrolling a huge American flag. Members of the Aquettes are: Cathy Collins, Kay Eldridge, Coco Gratz, Livi Mullen, Linda Sparks, Chi Chi Tobin, Diane Carinhas, Melanie Lintner, Lou Fly, Frances Smith, Carlee Breck, Ellen Mott, Charlotte Grist, Wally Percy, Don- na McKenzie and Sara Jones. 6 ^citi^SeaM ^fo/ic/an "Caribbean Holiday" was the theme of the Dance League's Spring Review, presented on the evenings of May II and 12. The Dance League, under the supervision of Miss Robin Johnson, took an im- aginary tour of the Caribbean, making many nostalgic of Spring Vacation. The audience was welcomed a- board the Frederico "C" with the opening number "Pink Confetti." Sandy Shoemaker followed with a solo and dance act. Ports of call were: San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; Fort De France, Marti nit] ue; La Guira, Venezuela; Aruba; Cartagena, Co- lumbia, Cristobal, Panama; Port Au Prince, Haiti; and finally Port Everglades, Florida. Dances in- cluded jazzy straw hat numbers as well as graceful ballet and toe numbers. Costumes were indica- tive of the islands and contributed to the success of the shou'. Participating in the review were: Miss Bronwyn Bowen, Carole Cole, Ellen Fling, Marilyn Green, Karen Griffen, Kitty Jordan, Barbara Smith, Carol Tripp, Carol Ward, Sandy Shoemaker, Pati Dickey, Ti- sha Edwards, Ruth Hudson, Carol Mclnnis, Patti Smith, Jerry Ann Aycock, Carmen Phelps, Nancy Bowman, Mary Lou Doolin, Ja Montgomery, Jo Ann Milling, Jane Peege, Isabel von Wachter, Kay Eldridge, Livi Mullen, Wally Percy, Mary Lee LaCour, Noel Rae Cow- ard, Martha Lockridge, Mary Mc- Allister, Rebecca Revel, Susan Big- gers, Debbie Culloden, Sheryl Fill- ingem, Liz Gerstner, Susan Kaye, Carole Ward, Sara Jones, Cynthia Hayes, Charlotte Moore, Susanne Repass, Jeanie Robertson, Cassie James, Melinda Levenson, Pat Staf- ford, Betty Stone, Barbara Carter, Diane Downey, Mary Ann Frank- lin, Jane Gates, Kathy Mixon, Elaine Porterfield, Michele Webb, Mary Ellen White, Ruthie Wind- sor, Eve Bower, Ann Burke, Jane Friday, and Gale Harrelson. /-^ ^ i^arilyhean i^ritise On Friday, March 24, a group ot" approximately thirty Gulf Park College students, accompanied by President and Mrs. William T. Sadler and Dr. Rupert H. Cooke, Vice President Emeritus, departed via National Airlines for Miami to begin a fourteen-day cruise in the Caribbean aboard the Frcderico C, sailing from Port Everglades, Flor- ida. The group was also accompa- nied by Mr. and Mrs. Byron Bovver and Mr. and Mrs. Roger W. Hampton. The group found life on the luxurious liner exciting as they \isited the loUowing ports of call: San Juan. St. Thomas, Martinique, Trinidad, La Guaira, Aruba, Cartagena, Panama, Kings- ion, and Port-Au-Prince. Heavily laden with souvenirs of their tra- \x-l, the cruise party returned to campus on y\pril 8. Although they were quickly thrown back into the routine of their studies, the memo- ries of their exciting adventures lingered . . . sometimes expressed in the strains of a song, an exotic dance or a straw hat to serve as a beach umbrella.

Entertainment for the evening consisted of selec- tions from several branches of the arts. The CJlee Club's contribution of "Four Love Songs" began the ;how. The Dance Department en- tertained Her Majesty with three dance numbers — a Spanish Bal- let, a beautiful toe-dance performed by Mary Lee LaCour, and finally a Straw Hat number.

AH students were encouraged to participate by doing thoughtiul things for their teach- ers, but the members of Phi Theta Kappa took the lead by placing rosebuds on the desks of all in- structors, furnishing coffee and do- nuts in the Faculty Lounge, and doing helpful things. The faculty readily caught the spirit and in- vited outstanding students to be guest teachers during the week. On Thursday members of the faculty were guests of Phi Theta Kappa for a barbecue luncheon at the pit in the picnic area by the Y-Hut. On Friday, the results of a student election were an- nounced. Mr. Laurie A. Drago, In- structor in History, was recognized as the "Instructor of the Year;" Mrs. Harriet (j. Smith, as the "Most Helpful Teacher;" Mr. Wil- liam Elbrecht as the "Most Popu- lar Teacher;" and Mrs. Betty Baker as the "Best Dressed Teacher." Colonel Eugene Wink was the re- cipient of a special "Oscar" be- cause of a strong vote in every cate- gory. Faculty Appreciation Week brought a feeling of mutual under- standing and respect to faculty and students. 11 n,\^/^ To Miss Patricia Flanagan President of Student Government for 1967-68 Mi:s Patricia Flanagan of Pikc- ville, Kentucky, has been installed as the President of the Student Cjovernment Association of Gulf Park for the year 1967-68. Through- out the year she has exhibited good leadership potential through her work with Phi Theta Kappa, the national honorary scholastic frater- nity, her sorority, and as a repre- sentative in the Student Govern- ment. She was one of the delegates to the Mississippi Intercollegiate Council and to the Conference of the Southern Universities Student (jovernment Association. The Student Government has made much progress at Gulf Park since the Student Council was first formed in 1953, when students felt the need for student responsi- bility and accepted the challenge. Each year has been marked with some progress, and in 1966-67 a Student Government Association replaced the Student Council and fulfilled many hopes. Under the direction of its president. Miss Deane Poellnitz, the association met weekly and gathered initiative (Continued on Page 13) 12 STUDENT GOVERNMENT. . . (Continued from Page 12) to achiexc an active position in the college structure. Student Govern- ment representatives encouraged the expression of individual sug- gestions, ideas, and, of course, com- plaints. The year was marked by increased trust, confidence and understanding between the student bcjdy and the administration of the college. In March the Student Govern- ment receixed and studied a num- lier ot; suggestions which came through a Phi Theta Kappa sur- \xy. The results of this survey caused the Student Government Association to evaluate still further some of the rules and policies gov- erning student life on campus. Re- commendations were submitted to the President's Advisory Council and a number of them were ap- proved. These changes, the stu- dents felt, were a great step for- ward in creating the collegiate at- mosphere they desired. The impor- tant achievement was that students realized perhaps for the first time that they do have a voice in their government and that they should act through the Student Govern- ment Association. During the year 1966-67, the Gulf Park Student Government As- sociation became recognized on a state and regional level. Progress and new ideas for a more efficient system were results oi participation in the Mississippi Intercollegiate Council and the Southern Univer- sities Student Government Associ- ation. Conferences of these two or- ganizations permittted Gulf Park's student leaders to discuss, compare and evaluate the "student role" with student leaders in other col- leges and universities. Miss Li\'i Mullen, a member of the Gulf Park Student Government Associ- ation, was elected second vice pres- ident in charge of junior colleges for 1967-68 in the Mississippi Inter- collegiate Council. The progress seen during the past year presents a challenge to every student at Gulf Park to sup- port its Student Government As- sociation in all of its endeavors. END OF THE LONG WHITE LINE The last trip to Ship has always been fraught with both sadness and happiness, all mixed up together. It has been at the same time both symbolic and deeply personal. This trip signifies the close of a good year; the bond which has grown between the two classes; the "com- ing of age," so to speak, of the Junior Class; and often the break- ing of certain ties with the past that have been so much a part of (julf Park. This past, contained in tradition, has never been so strong- ly felt as at Ship. Reflected in the time honored serenade, the fort, the cannon, the lighthouse, and fi- nally, the hats, this past and present have become one. The trip of May i, 1967, was the same as others . . . and yet very special. The juniors were thorough- ly entertaining in a skit that mock- ed student-administration relation- ships. Then the serenade ■ — per- haps (jne of the most poignant of all of Ship's serenades. The day closed with an air ol finality, since by mutual consent of the Senior ("lass of 1967, all seniors' hats were thrown at Ship Island . . . and this Senior Class has realized the reali- ty of the last ot the long white line. In 1967-68, Gulf Park will use the classifications, traditional to all colleges, of freshmen and sopho- mores. CONTRIBUTIONS TO GULF PARK Miss Janie Blackburn (right) presents a check to President William T. Sadler as a contribution toward the projected Little Theatre; Miss Connie Shaver (center), a check toward the renovation of a suite in Hardy Hall. MISS BETSY LANG RECEIVES THE SORORITY OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR THETA ALPHA Panhellenic Awards Highlighting a successful year of sorority activities and competition, the Panhellenic Awards Dinner was held in the dining room on May 9. Tapping of new sorority presidents headed the list of activi- ties for the occasion. As excitement built, each sorority president pushed back her chair and acknowledged the new sorority leader. Presidents for 1967-68 are: Sam Brandon, Del- ta y\lpha Sigma; Linda Livingston, Delta Chi; Sally Happer, Gamma Psi; Carol Ward, Kappa Chi; Mary Franklin, Sigma Psi Iota; and Ann Whitchurch, Theta Alpha.

Betsy Lang, President of Theta Alpha, accepted the trophy tor excellence on the athletic field. Presenting the fcrapbook award was Miss Rebecca Cato, Panhelle- nic Sponsor. Judges awarded Gam- ma Psi third place, while Delta Chi received outstanding second place recognition. Delta Sigma's art work claimed the top honor and the Scrapbook Award. As tension built. Dean Johnson stepped forward to precent the Ac- ademic Award to the sorority with the highest over-all cumulative grade point average. Winning this trophy for the second year in a row was Theta Alpha. Second place went to Gamma Psi; and third to Delta Chi. NOW — the moment for which all had waited, and worked. To climax the evening. President Sad- ler "reluctantly" announced the Sorority of the Year to a breathless audience. Delta Chi was awarded third place and Delta Alpha sec- ond. After relating a story pertain- ing to awards. President Sadler climaxed his presentation with the old saying, "the South Shall Rise Again," referring to the sorority seated in the south end of the din- ing room. With this remark Betsy Lang went to accept the trophy for Theta Alpha. This moment actual- ly had special significance as Theta Alpha is the first sorority to hold the trophy for two consecuti\'e years. Gulf Park students in clothing model their own creations in TV program over Vv'LOX. The students are shown on the grounds of the Broadwater Beach Hotel.

HARDY HALL RENOVATIONS: As an experiment to see what can be done in the renovation of Hardy Hall, one suite is being com- pletely torn out and renovated. The entire plan of the suite is being- changed. There will be paneling, formica topped built-in furniture, ade- quate closet space, and new bathroom fixtures. This experiment is bemg- made through the generosity of parents whose daughters will live in the suite next year. Possibly alumnae would like to contribute toward the renovation of their old room in Hardy Hall. The cost, excluding labor which the college will provide, is estimated at $1,000 per room. A plaque will be placed in each suite, showing the names of the donors who make the renovation possible. 15 Gift TliriiLiijIi Barney's Marine Service Three sixteen-foot O'Day Jave- lin Sailboats have been i^resented to Gulf Park College through the courtesy of Barney's Marine Ser- vice, Inc., of Gulf port, Mississippi, and the Atha Foundation of Kan- sas City, Missouri.
